Cytotoxicity of AgNPs. a Cell death of NCTC-1469, L-02, Hepa1–6 and HepG2 cells with or without AgNPs-treatment at 1, 4, 10, 20 or 50 μg/mL analyzed using flow cytometer. b Heatmap of cell viability. HepG2 cells were treated with AgNPs at 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 20, 30 or 50 μg/mL for 1, 2, 4, 6, 24 and 48 h, respectively. c Hyperspectral images of untreated and AgNPs-treated HepG2 cells at 4 or 10 μg/mL for 24 h. The yellow arrow denotes the internalized AgNPs in cytoplasm
